What are the challenges for the channel over the next 12 months?COVID instigated a hockey-stick growth for Cloud and online marketplaces. We’ve seen more growth in the past 6 months, than in the last 10 years. Added to this 76% of technology partners are moving to a subscription model, with some of the biggest tech giants such as Microsoft, IBM, CISCO and HPE have moved or are moving to a 100% subscription-based by next year. The biggest challenge facing the channel is speed and scale to move from a Transactional Partner who co-markets, co-sells and fulfills orders to Adoption Partner such as integration, services and expanded value selling.

Share a success story about one of your Australian partners:One such partner was able to remove the complexity and provide an entire solution for an end user that found a number of its sites failed to meet its IT standard during an audit.

With four sites complete and another 20 in the pipeline, the fully integrated solution uses a single feed power management unit, removing the need to build another switchboard.
